Reigning FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) title holder Josh Hook will take part in the inaugural season of the FIM Enel MotoE World Cup in 2019 with Pramac Racing.

Hook, who’ll be joined by Alex De Angelis, will pilot the Energica Ego Corsa in a strong 18-rider field that’s completed with a host of talented athletes from different championships around the world.

The MotoE World Cup will span over five European grand prix in 2019, while the first taste for Hook will come next week on 23-25 November in Jerez for the first official test.

“I’m thrilled to be with Alma Pramac Racing on this new MotoE adventure,” said Hook. “The 2019 season will be the first of many years for this new category and represents a great opportunity for me. I am very grateful to the team for believing in my ability and I am sure that we can get great satisfaction.

“MotoE is something new for everyone, so it will be great to work on the development of the bike and I’m sure we can have some great races. We have a few days of testing next week in Jerez and I am looking forward to working with the team on this new project so that we can have a real understanding of the bike. I would like to thank the Alma Pramac Racing team once again for making this possible.”

The New South Welshman still remains part of F.C.C. TSR Honda France’s EWC title defence, with round two of the 2018/2019 series scheduled for 20-21 April 2019 at Le Mans on France.
